This one is described as a ‘rare’ Type 115 Barbican apartment, arranged over the fifth, sixth and seventh floors of Willoughby House, complete with a barrel-vaulted studio at the top and a terrace, which throws in ‘extraordinary views’ of the Gherkin and the City.

The apartment overall measures approximately 1,023 sq ft internally, with an entrance on the fifth floor leading to a hallway with a coat cupboard, and steps up to a west-facing reception room with sliding glazed doors to a balcony / fire escape, along with views over the gardens and the lake. The kitchen, once open to the reception room, is now partitioned off.

On the next half landing is the bathroom with a separate WC, with the master bedroom on the next level up from that. A  curved staircase leads to the studio on the top floor, which could work as a second bedroom or as a secondary living room. The terrace here is apparently deeper than the standard Barbican balconies, with enough space for some seating.
